    With only a few weeks left now until the end of 2009, here are what I consider to be the best horror films so far.

    1) Orphan

    I rate it as 9/10. Only the fact that the father sounds gay and the cliche of profanity being a portent of mental illness caused it to lose a mark. Otherwise it was excellent.

    2) Mum & Dad

    Really from 2008 but it didn't get released in the US until this year. Easily the most evil thing that I've seen from British filmmakers ever and done by some of the nicest people in the world.

    3) Cold Prey

    Yet another one that had a delayed US release since it's actually from 2006. The sequel from 2008 isn't bad either. Ingrid Bolso Berdal kicked ass!

    4) Martyrs

    And the pattern continues with another film from 2008 that I didn't see until May. The French really excel with horror movies lately and this was easily the best of the bunch.

    5)The Uninvited

    Much better than the original "A Tale of Two Sisters" due to being slicker and easier to follow. When you rewatch it the scenes are more cleverly done than you originally think too.

    6) Drag Me To Hell

    It may just be a mixture of "Thinner" and "Night of the Demon" to some people but, outside of the deafening sound in movie theatres, the Unrated DVD is pretty good.

    7) Jennifer's Body

    Even if you aren't a big Megan Fox fan, this is entertaining enough in an 80s "Prom Night II" kind of way.

    8) Laid To Rest

    Another old school slasher with some great kills even if the suspense and acting aren't up to quite the same high standard.

    9) Twilight: New Moon

    I haven't even seen it yet but I know it's going to make it to my top ten. The only rivals it had were "Friday the 13th" and "My Bloody Valentine" and they both sucked. It would have to be "Harry Potter awful" to not be one of the best films this year.

    10) Grace

    Not quite what I expected but it entertained me enough to make it to the end. Not so much a horror movie as a drama with a couple of horror moments. Jordan Ladd makes it more watchable than it could have been.


    An honorable mention also goes to "Let the Right One In " since it was released on DVD this year. Really that was my top film of last year.

    What are yours?

    I think Paranormal Activity needs to be added to this list. That movie proved you don't need the ridiculous budget, big-name actors, sex scenes, or overdone special effects to make a good scary movie.

    Although box office results are no indication of whether a movie was actually any good or not, I now feel justified about adding New Moon to the list. :) I've watched it now and gave it 6 out of 10 which makes it three times better than Friday the 13th and My Bloody Valentine 3D even if it isn't really a true horror movie (anymore than the Underworld series) per se. :D

    I've only seen Drag and Martyrs.

    The first didn't really do it more though the handful of obscene gore scenes and the ending were noteworthy, besides that the napkin was pretty scary, bout it though.

    The second was a romp through twisted psychology but traded it's horror value for disturbing violence.

    The Orphan makes Damian from The Omen look like a shy sweet school boy.

    Yeah, I know what you mean, Jubei. The year started well and then gradually fizzled out to nothing. I wonder what excitement we'll have next year.

    Martyrs, I think was more than we could hope for, for 2009. It was shocking and disturbing. It had a story and a twist. It was definitely one of a kind.

    I'm still waiting the Zombie flick "Colin". I enjoy Zombieland. Ophan bored the crap out of me. Drag me to Hell was a trip down memory lane with Raimi.
